I Envy Them For Their Resilience - Poem by Francis Duggan

The most of us have our own worries Though to another your problems may seem small
But lucky are they very lucky who never seem to worry at all
Although in financial difficulties they don't allow that for to get them down
They never appear to be worried they smile as they walk in the town
I envy them for their resilience they laugh in the face of despair
You never do hear them complaining or moaning that life is unfair
They are like the great champion boxer they raise themselves up off the floor
And carry on with the life's battle and fight on as never before
Unlike those who moan over small things the victim mentality to them apply
They tell all who care to listen of their hardships by life they do feel hard done by
Whilst some who have far greater problems are never once heard to complain
In their toughest times they feel happy the smile on their face they retain
You never do hear them complaining they never blame life or the gods
Happy to accept their life's challenge they battle on against the odds.
